We cannot emphasize enough the importance of having proper winter protection at all time especially during winter season like this. If your local night temperature falls below 45F you will need to protect your plant(s) with heat pack. And they can be purchased
Heatpack will work properly only when the package is properly insulated. When you purchase a heatpack we will will ship your plant in a fully insulated foam box for proper temperature retention as generated by the heatpack. For large items such as upright cactus 2 – 3 heatpack may be needed. When your region is under severe winter weather below freezing, we will hold off and delay the shipping to a more appropriate weather and reschedule your shipment. We will not be able to cover your purchase due to death on arrival (DOA) due to cold in absence of proper winter protection as that have occurred in the past. We thank you for your understanding.

Note to our customers, we do not engage in selling of single leave cutting or node. Single leave cutting / nodes are high risk and as future variegation are unpredictable and unreliable. We only carry special full plant product as we take on rare plant collection very seriously. We were approached by our customers on a weekly basis asking us these questions but we really asked our buyer to stay away from a node as you may never know the quality of the node. Also, tissue culture Billietite (seedlings) are not of good quality and hardly produce any premium quality variegation consistently like you seen at a plant show or via social media. Because of its inability to be mass produced by TC, this plant remain in very few in circulation. Even the plant we come across with, 4 out of 5 plants are not of premium quality which we will reject. We are primarily in the ultra premium rare plant collection market. Because of liability reason, we do not endorse or advocate any sellers out there as quality can drastically varies from time to time.
Also, premium plants are sourced on a plant by plant basis, please do not ask us for current selection or what’s available in stock.

The purchasing and selection process requires us to properly and carefully educate our collectors and potential customer, and then we dedicated our efforts to help them match to their dream plant as much as possible. Many of our collectors do not buy our plants and resell, rather they are very serious in the collection hobby and will take their plant to their fullest potential. So we reserve the right to decline working with anyone with the specific intend to resell or chop the plant into pieces.
I am having goosebumps as I am typing drafting this epic listing. I have been sitting on this plant thinking about what I should write about it. Some say each plant has a unique characteristic much like dogs showing high resemblance to a particular human personality.
This plant is a lot fun to look at and to write about. It’s huge but humble, it’s colorful and creative, it’s architecturally sounded and its tough. It continues to surprise everyone with its random color variegation. It has so may layer of complexity. Its very unique. Its special just like every one of us.
If a person can be plant, it’s definitely this one. It’s cheerful, it’s unique, and it brings on a great smile to everyone’s face. Random colorful patterns of green, lime and cream, structurally sounded orange stems, who doesn’t want to stop for a moment and look at this amazing wonder?
Watch it in the morning, talk it with some friends, let it become the center of attention, let its glory shine during a show where many would admire from afar with glaring glows in their eyes.
They say we grow with wisdom as we age. This plant would grow to become spectacular wonder. With its leave span over 5 ft or more, it still have a long journey to grow.
Make a space for this spectator wonder, in fact, make a large permanent space as you will need let it shine. There won’t be any disappointment.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON SHIPPING:

If you want to upgrade to UPS shipping, please use the following link and select the appropriate upgrade option as needed:
Based on our shipping and handling experiences, if you like to improve the overall delivery quality of your plant investments, we would recommend you considering upgrading to UPS which seems to be our preferred method of delivery.
UPS are reliable for the most part but they no longer offer full guarantee time of arrival based on services employed. In our experience, nearly all of our package arrival on time with exception of severe snowstorm or unusual circumstances. We are happy with the UPS service offering.
We have a variety of UPS service upgrade available:
1. UPS Ground Upgrade – typically deliver anywhere in US between 2 to 5 business days. They do not ship over weekend – +$5
2. UPS 3 days Upgrade – 3 business days arrival – +$10
3. UPS 2 days Upgrade – 2 business days arrival – +$20
4. UPS Express Upgrade – Next Day Arrival – +$38
In our opinion, this upgrade option is very good to protect your valuable plant investment. For ultra rare specimen, we highly recommend it as that would create the least amount of stress for the plant. Those who utilize it truly enjoy the timeliness of our services and were thrilled to find their plants arriving in stellar conditions.
Do consider upgrade when your region is projected to have extreme cold or extreme hot weather. We try to avoid all our shipment to spend its weekend at the delivery facility at all time.
